The exhibition design as well as the catalogue for Maria Nepomunceno’s show Afetosyntesis at Stavanger Art Museum in 2017 was devised by Stavanger-based duo SAK design (Simon Kjær and Goedele Teirlinck). The perfect bound book is typeset in Satyr and LL Brown. Nepomunceno’s weaved and braided sculptures and installations are photographed by Marie von Krogh.
Using traditional methods of rope weaving and straw braiding as well as techniques of her own design Maria Nepomuceno has, since the the early 2000s, developed a process of sewing coils of coloured rope in spirals. She explores the potentially endless permutations of this adaptable form in sculptures and installations that incorporate beads, playful ceramic forms and found objects of varying sizes.
